    It has been raining since late yesterday, and I was itching to get out and see how the garden was doing after all the heavy rain. I was very glad that I had tied up the Delphiniums!

    I should have staked the Yarrow, as the first bloom was hanging low

    I like to look at rain soaked blooms Netty. It makes them slightly more photogenic in my opinion :) Thanks for posting them.

    Every thing looks so fresh and pretty after the rain. I haven't heard of a cabbage rose before but it is beautiful.
